Masculine Birthday with Taylored Expressions BBQ Grill…

We’ve had a series of birthdays again in the family.  Here I was inspired by a buffalo plaid card I saw out there in card land.  I know, super simple but I like it!  Pretty self explanatory!

You could easy add to it.  Below, I linked up the BBQ tools too.

I used the Cut Align Rulers set from My Sweet Petunia to cut the Happy Birthday saying.  I do like them but I’m fairly savvy with a craft knife. I can cut a straight line a long a ruler! lol

Well, thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back with more birthday soon!

Two Memory Box Perched Bird Die Cards…

Hi everyone…so many times we need a thinking of you card…when words aren’t enough, maybe a simple thinking of you card will help. Tragedy comes to everyone and when you can’t be there, a card is something tangible we can do.

This card is so CAS (clean and simple), truly lives up to the name and for once didn’t take any time to make!

I doubt that it even needs any explanation!  I did use a little foam mounting tape under the bird. The white die cut is glued directly to the A2 card base.

I stamped Thinking of You from the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp set in the MISTI with Archival black ink.  I’ll link everything up at the bottom of the post.

 

Then I die cut the Perched Bird again from Mixed Media card and watercolored it with Zig Real Brush Pens. The frame from the Splendid Rose Frame the same.

The sentiment this time is from the Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Archival black ink.

I added some twine to doll it up a bit…

See that blue-ish vase in the picture?  My daughter was going to toss it!  I love it! lol  It’s ceramic…perfect picture prop for this card! lol

Thank you for stopping by today. Happy July!

Memory Box Antique Garden Label Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends! I’m making my way through the new Memory Box release.

Today I revisited my Embedding Technique… it’s one of my faves for this type of die! My video explaining the process is HERE.  When I made the video though, we weren’t using as heavy a cardstock as we do now.  Today I used Canson Smooth Bristol in the orange cover pad.  I did it just like the video except that I ran it through my Big Shot and then back.

So cool, I just love the ease of adhering the die this way and the bit of dimension that looks so professional!

 

Some distress oxide inking on the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die cut panel. (die cut and ink this panel before you embed the die cut to it) I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Twisted Citron.

I spattered with water, white paint, spiced marmalade Distress Ink refill and twisted citron Distress Ink refill.

 

I die cut another panel with the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangle and mounted the inked panel to it with mounting tape.

Then adhered it to an A2 card base.

I stamped a sentiment in the Label opening with the MISTI and the Archival Distress Spiced Marmalade Ink pad.  The sentiment is from the poppystamps Birthday Blowout clear stamp set.

I added a few matte enamel dots.  I like it! lol  Sunshiny, Summery colors!

Thanks for stopping by! Keep making!

Memory Box Antique Corner Rose Label and Antique Leaf Label Thank You Card…

Hi eveyone!  Are you enjoying the NEW Memory Box release this time?  So many fun flower dies!  yay!

Today I die cut everything in white and colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers.  The flower pieces from the Antique Corner Rose Label die are colored with R81, 83 and the center dots on the two largest with R85.  The leaves on both the Antique Corner Rose and Antique Leaf Label die are colored with G24.

I pieced the dies together with the right side face down so I could put mounting tape over the back sides. Small pieces…I always check to make sure there isn’t any hanging over and if there is, I trim from the front and cut the excess at a slant so it doesn’t show.  On this one, I left the pieces hanging over on purpose so they’d catch the frames, then trimmed them all… works great!

I used the medium size of the new Pinpoint Butterfly Trio and left it white!

I stamped thank you and terrific from the new Big and Little Words clear stamp set on the label using the MISTI with Ranger Archival black ink.

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers ink.  I started out with the mini ink blending tool but then changed to the make up brush oval type brush to get the edges feathered out better.

Spattered it with water, dried it with the heat tool, spattered on some Hero Arts White Watercolor paint, then some black paint, drying in-between colors.

I’m really happy with it and will close with telling you all thank you for being so terrific!  Cardmakers are the best!

It’s a sunshiny day here!  A rare thing this Spring.  Maybe I can get out for a walk! Take care and thanks for stopping by!

SSS ‘Celebrate You Release’ Filigree Message Circle Die with MB Flower Dies…

It’s time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp! They sent me their new Filigree Message Circle die to play with.  Kinda fitting since it was designed by Memory Box.

So I set to work and used a couple Memory Box flower dies too!

I used sentiments from the SSS last release, Tiny Words Encouragement clear stamp set. Links below…

I wanted to embellish the circle so I diecut the NEW Memory Box Daisy Silhouette die in white and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

YG17 Matches Taylored Expressions Peapod cardstock perfectly!  I’ll link below.

Here’s a top view because there is dimension to the card! 😀

The top layer is Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock.

A close up…I think this picture captures the sweetness of the card the best! 😀

Next photo, the cards together…a variety of things you can do with this die.  Use your other circle dies to frame it etc. My white die cut panel is popped up to the card base with foam mounting tape and the kraft die cut panel is adhered directly to the card base.

I have this Lawn Fawn Inside Out Circle die set and love how it framed this Filigree Message Circle die.

I wanted to embellish with flowers again and liked the idea of tulips cuz it’s May and tulips are big in the area we live.

This is the Memory Box Springtime Tulips die. I clipped out the tulips and used them without the circle they come with.

A top view… I ink blended the flower parts that come with the die to back the tulips, with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I ink blended the card base with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink.

The leaves are inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.


Sweet, feminine cards that anyone would enjoy receiving.  YAY!

Memory Box NEW Brilliant Sunflower Die Cards…

Hi everyone!  Here’s what I’ve been doing so far this week.  The new dies from Memory Box arrived and I got busy!

I’ve always liked sunflowers and holly hocks.  I suppose because they look free spirited! haha

For this card, I used the NEW Brilliant Sunflower and added the square frame from the Splendid Rose Frame from this year’s earlier release.  I LOVE how these mix and match!

I made a short video of how I emboss the detail in the sunflower head…watch it here or on You Tube.

 

I really like how embossing deepens the detail.

I inked edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini round ink blending tools.

I colored the center of the embossed yellow piece with color pencil and added white dots with a white gel pen.

Some quick die piecing in the corners….heat embossed sentiment is from the NEW Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set. It’s made to coordinate with some of the other new dies too so you’ll be seeing it used a lot! yay!

Stamped with Versamark, in the MISTI stamping tool.

You brighten my day!  It’s true!

I used the NEW Misti Cut Align tool to cut the sentiment strip… I REALLY like having that tool!  Tools are everything!

Some enamel dots…

So then, cuz I had experimented and cut so many sunflowers in different colors, I decided to use the white cut!

I dry embossed the yellow flower head that’s behind the white outline die… I love how it looks, it just gives it a little roundness.  I glue it just in the center so the petals can kinda look free-ish.

A Distress Oxide background in Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint using the cheap make up brushes to blend it on the card-base.  I’ll link to the ones the stamp company is selling but I’m using the cheap ones and love them!

A happy, cute card! 😀 We all need a little sunshine in-between rains these days!

The sentiment is from the same NEW set as above… I am loving this set! I had fun making these two cards!

Both cards are 4 ½ inches square.  You could mail this size in an A6 envelope or a 5 inch square one.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re enjoying the flowers in paper or in dirt!

poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves and Memory Box Lilly of the Valley Sprigs Circle Cards…

Smiling today and enjoying the Worlds Robotics competition in Detroit via live streaming on my own computer!  It’s kinda funny racing between the stamp room and the computer room because I still need to get stuff done around here! haha  One of our grandson’s is on the team from here and the older one that was on the team last year is helping. Three of their brothers/grandsons are dressed in their mascot shirts that Heather, our daughter made them.  So, yep, I’m smiling.

This card makes me happy too!  I die cut the new poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves die in white cardstock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I will tell you the colors but yes, I often start out with one set of colors and end up coloring over with another set.  *cross your eyes* lol  I started out with YG63 and 67 for the vines but decided to change it after coloring the one pot YG17 and 25.  So I quickly went over the vines with YG17… a new green color! ;D  YG17 and 25 are pretty much my go to green.

For pink it was RV21 and 23 I think.  Yellow is Y15 and 18 but I think I put a little YR18 in the veins.  The terra cotta color is YR18, E07 and E99.  The tealish blue is BG02 and 05. The tan pot is Y28.  The Shelves are E35 and 37.

I used a little white gel pen here and there for accents.

The sentiment is from the Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments clear stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The dark blue panel is die cut with the largest die from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and glued to a top folding A2 white cardbase.  I added 5 of the smallest size Doodlebug Sprinkles.  I love them!  The card is pretty fun without them though if you want a completely flat card for snail mailing. It will still mail with the sprinkles for one stamp but I put a piece of that super thin packing stuff on top of it.

Next card…

Using some of the 6×6 paper pad stash this time…yes it’s older.  Carta Bella Flora No 1 it’s called.  Start digging, you probably have it! hohoho

I trimmed out the Lily of the Valley Sprigs from the Circle die after cutting it and the watering can from white cardstock.  Then I added a little Copic coloring again.  Pinks RV13 and 14.  Greens YG63, 67 and 99.  Gray is W2 and 3.

I used some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel Drops to make some droplets. I made them on my craft sheet and then glued them on.

Nothing real earth shaking but I like it!  But who do you send a ‘do something nice everyday’ card to?!  hmmmm

Holler if you have any questions!  Links below to what I used to make these cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
